Beautiful home right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed. It was clean and the beds were comfortable! We would definitely stay here again. We had two couples and it gave us each our own bathroom and separate floors! The water is very high this year and there isn't much beach but we had so much fun looking for petoskey stones. Guys golfed, girls shopped. Had dinners in and out at some great restaurants. We loved the walking paths! Quiet area. Very happy with our stay!

A mid-June 2016 PERFECT experience!

  • 5 of 5

In many ways I can only echo the sentiments already given by the other “5 star” reviewers, yet these sentiments are worth echoing. The house is lovely; beautiful. The scenery is even more lovely; beautiful. Given the position on the bay, one has the distinct advantage of being able to observe both the sunRISE and sunSET from the patio! As to the house itself, I cannot say enough good things. All amenities are provided, from beautiful fridge, range, and coffee maker… to sound system, TV/DVD, and wireless internet. The bathrooms are clean and functional (nice hot showers every day); the washer/dryer works flawlessly; the beds are comfortable. Perhaps most important of all, Cheryl the owner was extremely pleasant to deal with; excellent/timely communication both in email and telephone. Truly, As a ‘home away from home’ goes, this has been our absolute best experience. We hope to come back again!

Relaxing and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and quiet retreat located right on the water, situated conveniently between the towns of Charlevoix & Petoskey. The view from the deck is amazing, and the house is just steps away from the water. While the house is older, the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated. The beds and bedding are very comfortable, and there was plenty of comfortable seating in the living area. We used the large grill often and took full advantage of the chairs & fire ring on the beach, as well as the furniture on the deck. The beach is rocky, so small children may not like it. We just wore old tennis shoes while in the lake, so it was no problem. Also, there are steep steps to the beach, so very young or very old guests might need assistance. I highly recommend this cottage for a quiet, relaxing vacation!

Best of All Worlds...Pure Michigan style!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely lovely property with an even more gorgeous view right outside the window! We have stayed in this home twice - once in the winter and we just returned from a June visit. Both trips provided a wonderful retreat! Breezy and bright in summer and cozy in the winter. We just can't say enough about it! Some favorite food/drink spots include Petoskey's Chandler's, Palette Bistro, Petoskey Brewing & Beard's! Cormack's Deli is incredible (although closed on weekends). The location of this cottage between Charlevoix and Petoskey make it a perfect spot to stay and it is completely equipped with Wi-Fi, cable, local artwork and beautiful furnishings. Attention to detail shines. Can't wait to stay here again!

Tranquility Awaits

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying in this area, but our first time at this property and I wont' stay anywhere else from now on. From the moment we entered the property, we knew we made the right decision staying here. This lovely home is better than described. Every possible amenity has been provided, from the expertly appointed kitchen with coffee bean grinder and all, to the beach towels and relaxing beach chairs at the water. This beautifully decorated home is located off the beaten path, just enough to give you peace and quiet without being too far away from some good restaurants. And waking up to the most amazing view made for a perfect escape. We can't wait to return.

Bon Voyage!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing holiday! We arrived to the sweetest lakefront home. Spic and span it was ready for immediate occupation. Just as described we had all the amenities of home , the most spectacular waterfront views and sunset evenings.

After days of touring from Charlevoix to the Tunnel of Trees we returned to the cooling comfort of the 'Chalet'. Evening suppers from the BBQ on the deck were capped off with fireside evenings plus SMORES, glorious sunsets followed by starry skies. We managed a scenic bicycle ride on the nearby trail alongside Lake Michigan.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary at Knot just a Bar at Bay Harbor, We feasted at Leg's Inn. We lunched at the Weathervane, the Stafford Inn, Red Mesa Grill and The Pier. Iced Coffees from Roast and Toast topped off an afternoon of shopping. We had a morning of fun at Pirates Cove! Arrrrgh! We even managed a visit with friends at Michigania! Go Blue! Local grocery stores were able to supplement anything we forgot for those wonderful late evening suppers. Shopping was highlighted by Sturgeon River Pottery, Cherry Republic and Cutlers. We look forward to returning next summer.

The cottage sits on the shores of Lake Michigan, one of the most beautiful fresh water lakes in the world. Visiting the region throughout the spring,summer and fall you can enjoy the fresh air, brilliant stars at night, the northern lights and the beauty of the water and amazing fall colors. Secluded but not far away from lots of cultural activities as well - Petoskey and Charlevoix have summer festivals, art fairs, sailing events, shopping, dining and much more.

Other Activities: Petoskey Stone Hunting

Golf: Just minutes from Bay Harbor and many other world class golf courses in Northern Michigan.
